to jim acosta at the white house. what is the latest in terms of diplomatic efforts on the u.s. front? >> president obama met with his national security advisers earlier this evening, they're not really looking at military options, at least according to what the white house is saying. they're focused on what can be done economically and diplomatically, you heard this talk over the weekend that u.s. and allies won't go to the g-8 summit this summer in russia. the u.s. is cancelling all military engagements that it has with the russians, that's a new step that took place this evening. you mentioned that secretary of state john kerry is heading over to kiev to talk about financial assistance that he is brings promises of from the united states and hopefully according to this white house from european allies, but the president believes that the world is on his side, not vladimir putin's side, the question is whether vladimir putin is listening. >> and in terms of options that the united states has. i mean, there are not a huge number of options. >> there aren't a whole lot of options, the

correspondent jim acosta. jim, what are we expecting the president to say here? >> i think the president is going to back up secretary john kerry and other officials, including jay carney earlier this afternoon, that any moves by russia to intervene in the crisis to perhaps invade that territory of crimea would be a grave mistake, in the words of white house officials and according to secretary of state john kerry. one thing that we've been pressing officials all day long, jake, is exactly who those forces are in the crimea area. we're seeing forces with insignias that appear to be blackandover or concealed. it's not clear who is on the ground in crimea. hopefully we'll get updated information from the president as to what that is. jake, make no mistake, this is, again, once again, another confrontation between the president and vladimir putin over what is happening. those events on the ground in the ukraine. >> let's bring in chief national correspondent jim sciutto. i was e-mailing with a senior official who points out that the russians have a base and the question is whether what they
. let's bring in with our national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim? >> wolf, officials are attempting to de-escalate the crisis and avoiding any moves that may further inflame the situation. does russia expand its military intervention or does it pull back? on the ground in ukraine, there's a volatile mix of armed forces and emotions, which we saw flair up today. today in crimea, russian and ukrainian forces in a dramatic and dangerous standoff. weapons drawn and here a threat to open fire. >> i said stop! i'm serious. i'll shoot at your legs. >> reporter: and as secretary of state john kerry arrived in the ukrainian capital of kiev, a war of words. russian president vladimir putin and secretary kerry trading die metric clee opposed views of the crisis. back and forth. >> translator: the acting president, of course, is not legitimate. >> the elected representatives of the people of ukraine, they overwhelmingly approve the new government. >> reporter: and back and forth. >> translator: citizens of ukraine, both russian and ukrainian, what worries them? they are worried a

their pierce. >> jim capretta, what do you think the president is doing or not doing to close the gap? >> i think the budget is aimed at a political statement, not a legislative change. i don't think there is a chance the many proposals will be enacted. it's a political argument the democrats can carry into the november election. the white house all be admitted that's their aim with this kind of budget. back to the issue of inequality. there is a misunderstanding of how inequality came about and whether or not it affects people on the low end. inequality happened because we have a global economy and if someone finds a new idea or research effort or something that's innovative, you can do very, very well in this country if you're a part of that. does that come at the expense of people at the low end? no. there have been many, many economic studies that have shown that just because somebody at the high end is doing better that doesn't come at the expense of the low end. so the president's proposal is really a prescription for the wrong problem. secondly, even if it was the right problem, the

obama. senior white house correspondent jim akosta joins me now with details about that call. jim, what do you know? >> reporter: first thing to point out before i detail that phone call, we're getting word that the president at a local fund-raiser in the washington, d.c. and told people at the fund-raiser that we may be able to deescalate this crisis in his words. the u.s. may be able to deescalate the crisis in the coming days so interesting to hear the president using the words, perhaps a hopeful sign about the way the white house feels about what's happening in ukraine at this point. but getting to that phone call, yes, as we all know it took place on saturday. 90 minutes long and according to a senior administration official briefing reporters on that phone call earlier this evening, the president and vladimir putin spent much of that time during that phone call debating the facts on the ground with respect to what's happening on the ground in ukraine. russian president basically saying that he's trying to defend the rights of ethnic russians in ukraine and the president spent the
in the 1950s and '60s. it's jim crow back from the dead. i wrote a piece for this in u.s. news and world report. that's my biggest problem. they're cloaking racism and bigotry per se in the name of god. i'm a christian. i believe in god. if i'm in the public domain, if someone comes to me and says, hey, here's the deal, i'm straight and i don't like gay people, my response is great. how much are you willing to pay because i have something to offer you? if you're going to be in the business of interstate commerce, the constitution and the supreme court are clear, you cannot have separate but equal grounding. they struck that down. after the brown decision and after congress passed the civil rights acts, you can't just say i don't like you, therefore, i'm going to in the public arena not serve you or accommodate you or feed you if you have money for that proxy. it's against the law. >> i want to go back to pete on that question because the reaction to the discrimination that was taking place across the jim crow south was federal. there was a federal civil rights act of 1964. we'll celebrat
on the tightrope of diplomacy. jim maceda joins us. >> reporter: what a difference a day makes really. putin's comments on tuesday that he had no desire to annex the crimea peninsula, to take a step back from the brink. even though crimea remains tense on the ground today there's a new report of russians seizing two ukrainian anti-missile posts. still it feels like ukraine is spinning not towards war today but some kind of diplomatic solution. for instance, after secretary of state john kerry's visit to kiev yesterday, where he did show support for that new pro-western government with very strong words against vladimir putin and a promise of a billion dollars in loans, today kerry meets for the very first time since the current crisis escalated with his russian counterpart to talk exit strategy. more significantly, the ukrainian and russian governments are talking on a cabinet level today for the first time. and then there's a russian defense official discussing ukraine with nato members in brussels as well. of course, there's only one man who can make or break any deal. that's vladimir puti
and jim pinkerton with the best location of the day in sunny, miami, florida. good to see you. >> good to be with you. >> joe, i have to start with you. white house press secretary jay carney doubled down on this and said also this week, those stories, a lot of them turned out not to be true. is that a winning argument for the democrats? because there are millions of people waiting to tell their stories and they're not flattering. >> well, i think what -- what reed was talking about, i think, and what jay carney were talking about is a lot of the ads that were being played. most of them made for americans by process tearty to have a ton of problems with the stories they are telling. they did this thing where they showed people receiving cancellations on their policies. it turned out those were paid actors pretending that their policies had been canceled. one woman who said her premiums had gone up, back checkers gave that one pinocchio because her premiums have gone down. there's tons of problems with the ads being run out there across the country. >> that aside, harry reid did not, to
'll have more on what organizing for action chief jim messina has now told his team. >>> good morning from washington. it's tuesday, march 4th, 2014. this is "the daily rundown." >>> first reads of the morning, russian president vladimir putin went before the media this morning to defend his country's actions in the wake of the ukrainian revolution, arguing that it amounted to a coup that demanded a russian response. he he told reporters he would use force in ukraine only as a last resort, he claimed. but he said he reserves the right to do so. putin also said further military action would be justified because the ousted president, victor yanukovych has requested it. he said anything russia does would be to protect the citizens of ukraine. and he even told reporters that the soldiers currently in crimea, they're not russian soldiers at all. he called them local forces. now, responding to the united states, the russian leader shrugged off threats of diplomatic or economic punishments. meanwhile, president obama said monday that russia has a choice. >> over time, this will be a costly propos
at this hour. elise labott joins us and michael holmes and our chief national security correspondent, jim sciutto, joins us from washington. >>> first, elise, i want to speak with you. i understand john kerry has already had a brief meeting with the russian foreign minister, sergei lavrov. they have had a somewhat decent relationship in the past. they are set to have a one-on-one meeting any minute now. what's the realistic goal of this meeting? >> reporter: the goal, john, is really to get russian prime minister, lavrov, to sit down with the ukrainian foreign minister. that minister flew on secretary kerry's plane last night with us from kiev to paris. he says he is really eager to sit down with the russian foreign minister. that's what all this diplomacy is about today, trying to give russia that diplomatic off ramp. they want russia and ukraine to sit down, have a dialogue along with the u.s., u.k., france, germany, members of the international community with an interest. they want to get monitors on the ground in ukraine acknowledging that russia does have these concerns in ukraine, p
, jim, thank you for the accolades. i just get the blame or the credit being in charge of the department. we did a complete retooling of the department. we tipped the balance to relying on beat officers which was a big change of pace. the most important thing that we did was created a comprehensive gang violence reduction strategy. we had one of the worst gang violence problem. we didn't have a comprehensive strategy. we developed that and it revolves around the strategy. so when one issue happens it doesn't kickoff a whole series of events. it focuses on the people, places and things that are causing gang violence in the city. the people being the gang members and a lot of attention has been drawn to our custom notification program which revolves around a formula created by vindividual where we canfied fi an individual who is likely to be involved as an offender. that strategy is probably one of the most comprehensive in the country. >> it is. i want to bring you in evelyn, as well. it is also about prevention programs. can you explain to our viewers how that works and how that keeps yo

with pretty credible knowledge that jim harbaugh is trying to run up the key players the wrong way. i cannot emphasize this enough the greatest water cooler conversation going on. what about hardball? my only gripe is i and offer her raising hell but when you have to years left only raise tell when you have 1 years left. jim is not starving. i think this is just my thinking a lot of fun to embarrassment for the organization. it is not all jim spot for the team's fault. teaming it is not all jim's fault. >> catherine: 6 months, isn't that enough time. >> gary: i think one year is good enough. >> gary: after reportedly having issues with those in the 49ers front office most notably general manager trent baalke there are rumblings that jim harbaugh is also wearing thin with some 49ers players in a column by the san francisco chronicle's ann killion today she wrote "one source with inside knowledge of the team says that harbaugh's act has worn thin in the locker room, particularly among some key "face of the 49ers" type players. while the team is winning, that's not a problem. but a few losses
here on "mad money." i'm jim cramer and i'll see you tomorrow. edition beginning right now. >> good evening, i'm larry kudlow. this is the "kudlow report." we're live at p.m. eastern and 4:00 p.m. pacific. it was the best day of the year for the dow. markets in rally mode as ukraine tensions seemed to ease. bob joins us live with much more. >> this was a classic relief rally with historic highs in the s&p 500 but more than that, the highs in the mid cap and the small cap, the russell 2,000. this was a broad rally. we had roughly six to one declining. nine out of ten sectors in the s&p 500 were up. that's very unusual. health care was up as much as cyclical groups. a lot of traders assume the tension and the ukraine thing would go on a lot longer than this. it's not over obviously but there's a sense there's been a deescalation. the volatility dropped because of that. it shot from 14 to 16 yesterday and back to 14 today because even though it's unclear what the scope of the russian military action might be, an outright invasion of the whole country with tanks for example rolling into
indicates the degree to which russia is on the wrong side of history in this. >> jim maceda joins us now from moscow. jim, we've been talking about this, do you see this as a pull back and a lowering of tensions herely vladmy putin or is it just coincidence? >> hi, julia. it's not questions dense. it wasn't coincidence when they games were called five or on six days ago to take place along the russian/ukrainian border and it's not questiocoincidence tha they're ending today. vladimir putin could just as well have changed, for whatever reason, changed tend date. if this does happen, keep in mind, it was ordered that we haven't seen any indication of a pullback. the -- certainly if these war games do come to an end, it's going to mean that that massive show of force, we're talking about 150,000 troops, 900 tanks, 200 warships and airplanes. i mean, this should really bring the temperature down just in the seeing of and the doing of that kind of pullback. so russia has built up a fourth -- on crimea and division 5, 15,000, 16,000. it has complete operational control of crimea and it's still
by the 1997 base agreement, and de-escalate rather than expand their invasion. >> nbc's jim maceda is in moscow. jim, putin said in his speech yesterday that he didn't have troops in the crimea. he also acknowledge the idea, perhaps, of a further dialogue. so what is the situation here? and do you believe in a diplomatic solution given what putin was saying yesterday? >> good morning, julia. what a difference a day makes. based on putin's comments, many would say that they're taking them with a grain of salt. but he did say tuesday that he saw no need for the use of force in ukraine, he had no desire to an ex the crimean peninsula. that has allowed in people's perception for a stepping back from the brink. this cold war style military confrontation seems to be yesterday's news. and even though crimea remains tense today on the ground, there have been more exchanges of fire, there's been an approach by the russians to take over a ukrainian post again. still, even though these forces are locked in a standoff, it now appears as if ukraine is spinning not towards war, but some kind of

between president obama and president putin on saturday. it was reportedly 90 minutes. jim acosta literally just walked out of a white house briefing. what more have you found out about the crucial call which i think is fair to say went a pretty long time. >> it did, erin. it's not often we get a lot of details about a 90-minute phone call between the president and any leader of any country. we talked with some senior administration officials here at the white house about the situation in ukraine, and about that 90-minute phone call. according to the senior administration official, the president spent much of that time, and this goes to perhaps the whole reason why this crisis is unfolding, the president spent most of the time basically challenging putin on his facts that vladimir putin was basically saying that he's stepping in or that russia has a right to defend the interests of ethnic russians in ukraine. and that the president spent much of that the phone call basically disagreeing with vladimir putin. so i think that that goes to what we've been hearing over the last several
$1 billion in loan guarantees to ukraine. i'm going to turn to senior white house correspondent jim acosta. so, jim, you have both the secretary of state and president obama expressing a lot of support for ukraine today and the administration seemed to offer president putin perhaps a way out of this crisis. >> that's right, brianna. i think that's what the president and the administration has been saying all along through this, that there are these off-ramps for vladimir putin if he wants to bring in international observers to deal with some of these questions that he has about the safety of ethnic russians, which by the way the administration rejects, then bring in international observers. i will tell you we just came out of what was supposed to be a budget briefing and as you know the president was making those remarks earlier at a budget event. it just shows you how much ukraine and the events are dominating everything right now. i had a chance to ask white house press secretary jay carney about vladimir putin's claim that those are not russian troops in crimea and jay carney sai

this that is unrelated. you heard jim talk about the un envoy sent to crimea. that was threatened and not kidnapped. he is now safe and preparing to leave ukraine. several armed men threatened special envoy robert sari. they blocked him at a coffee shop. break this down for us. what happened and what kind of threat was this? how did he escape the coffee shop? >> we heard jim saying someone will get hurt. this un envoy has his diplomatic mission cut short in crimea. it just arrived. he visited a naval base and was leaving when armed men, 10 to 15 in number, not everyone with weapons surrounded him and demanded he leave crimea immediately and go to the airport. he got into the car he came with and refused to get out and the men blocked the car. they then were threatening him. he was described as shaken and not physically hurt. he walk and sought refuge. the late news is that the united nations is saying they are taking a late flight out and will return shortly to kiev to continue his mission. cut short by today's incident, the words of the united nation spokesman office here in new york. secretary genera
-minute warning on that. kristen welker at the white house. stay with us, obviously. we want to go to jim maceda on the line with us, on the phone from moscow. jim, we are told that the 3red plead and also vladimir putin have had words and spoken to one another on the phone. what can you tell us about that? >> i don't have insight into that phone call but from my perch in moscow, we cannot underestimate the deep sense of rebee trail that president putin feels at this point, given the way the events eventually unfolded. they thought the february 21st agreement would lead to a series of benchmark, a timeline that would have taken yanukovych, kept him in power until the end of the year and then suddenly, everything was flipped on its ear. putin found himself outside of the loop as all of these forces, a whole new group of people that putin mistrusts profoundly were suddenly calling the shots, not from inside kiev's parliament, but from the streets of kiev. -- >> let's go now to president obama at the white house. thank you, jim. >> the united states has been responding to events as they unfold in u
approved that use of force. on the phone, we have chief national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim, what is this very quick vote signal to you? >> reporter: i think it's the russians slow rolling an invasion of sovereign ukrainian territory, and in direct defiance of repeated public and stern warnings from u.s. officials ranging from secretary kerry, secretary hagel right up to the top, right up to the president. you saw his comments yesterday. it is a sobering development. the fact is, u.s. officials were already telling us yesterday that those masked troops on the ground as of yesterday in and around crimea were russian so now you have a public in effect acknowledgment from the russian government that the president wants to send troops in there, this authorization. i think the other point is that you can see this as an intelligence failure by the u.s. officials had been telling us in the last 48, 72 hours that it was their assessment that the russians would not go in, and here you have it happening. it is not the way they did it in georgia in 2008. you remember when russia sent t
. craig? >> all right. nbc's ian williams for us there in ukraine, thank you. want to bring in nbc's jim mecada now. we heard from secretary of state kerry and samantha power and then the white house announcement on friday afternoon that warning that there would be costs. how's russia reacting to the criticism coming from this country? >> reporter: well, if russia is putin, they're reacting like the teflon man. first of all, the reason for that is that putin wouldn't call what he's doing an act of war or aggression with all due respect to secretary of state kerry, but more of an act of self defense from his point of view, from putin's point of view, the new western or pro-western government in kiev is posing an existential threat to crimea and it's an essential war mortar port and base for the black sea fleet and he doesn't seem a bit affect bd i the criticism from abroad. putin doesn't seem to -- he doesn't seem to believe that the u.s. or its allies have the leverage to hurt him, especially when he sees the kind of reaction coming from russians out in the streets here in moscow and st.
traders are jim urio and anthony grisante in new york. jim, i will start with you. what's your best trade given what we have seen and the moves we've seen already in some of those commodities? >> i think it's oil. remember this. even if people are saying buy the dip and this situation will come to some sort of settlement in the next couple days, markets don't forget immediately what drove them to that spot. the market move can sometimes take a lifetime of its own. i think crude's up to 108, 110 because the market will remember oh, yeah, there's geopolitical risk and it's hard to be short crude. i expect that to be the best trade. >> anthony, do you agree? is there a trade higher on the list for you? >> i agree with jim only because oil was strong even before any of this started. there is high demand for our products not only in the u.s. but around the world. that can be affected. but the trade i'm looking at is gold. i think it's gotten a little ahead of itself. i really don't think in my opinion that we are going to see all out war here. gold getting good resistance. i'm looking to actua
on ukraine. let's bring in our senior white house correspondent, jim acosta. jim, the white house says it won't be sending a presidential delegation to the paralympic games in sochi, russia that, are about to begin. is this more boy costs? it looks like the g-8 summit in june the u.s. was planning on participating in, that may be gone, as well. >> reporter: that's right. and you heard secretary of state john kerry say, wolf, it may become the g-7. that russia may be expelled. want to pick up on something you were talking about with anderson cooper about that alleged ultimatum from russia to ukrainian forces about crimea. there is a state department conference call going on right now, wolf, and a state department spokeswoman, jen psaki, said they don't have any independent confirmation that ultimate yum has been issued. but if that had occurred, it would in their view constitute a dangerous escalation. so that quick response from the white house to those events, even though the russians are saying that that did not occur. you mentioned the word from the white house earlier this morning that, y
right, ian williams, thank you for that report. >>> let's turn now to russia where nbc's jim maceda joins us from moscow. what's the latest from there, jim, particularly in the wake of the news conference that putin held yesterday? >> reporter: hi, kristen. well, from the -- certainly from this perch here, it does feel like a flurry of diplomacy in the past 24 hours. the chances of avoiding war in the ukraine seems to be getting a boost, particularly from putin's comments yesterday, tuesday, that he saw no need to use force in ukraine and had no desire to annex the crimean peninsula. those two comments really allowed the military confrontation that we've been reporting on to take a step b k back. and even though, as ian reports, crimea remains tense on the ground today with a new report that russians had seized two ukrainian anti-missile posts, the perception still is that ukraine is spinning now not towards war, but towards some kind of diplomatic solution. secretary of state john kerry's meeting with sergey lavrov, for instance, starting in paris in less than an hour, is their fi
lingering fears they will not stop there. jim maceda joins us live from moscow with more on the diplomatic efforts under way. jim, what's the latest? >> reporter: hi, there, tamron, well, that meeting you referred to was indeed brief, kerry did urge lavrov to have direct talks. that seems to be an important theme now, unifying this swirl of activity. it was their first face-to-face since the ukraine crisis escalated. that is just one example of this, again, this flurry happening over the past 24 hours, tamron, the chances of avoiding war in ukraine seem to have gotten a boost from vladimir putin's comments. yesterday if you recall, he said he saw no need for the use of force in ukraine, had no desire to annex the crimean peninsula, and really that's a sigh of relief has been resinating in the international financial markets, including here in russia in moscow after historic drops on monday. that's just one example. the perception today, tamron, is that ukraine is spinning now not towards war, but some kind of diplomatic solution. in addition to kerry/lavrov meetings, more importantly, you'
to this ukraine crisis. our chief national security correspondent, jim sciutto, monitoring what's going on. and, you know, these diplomats, u.n. envoy basically held there. it getting ugly. but maybe lavrov and kerry, they do have a personal relationship that goes way back. maybe they can come up with something. >> they do. relationship that helped with that chemical weapons deal in certi syria. you look at the incident with the u.n. envoy and other skirmishes. you remember yesterday we saw ukrainian and russian soldiers go nose to nose and shots fired in the air. this is why you need diplomacy now. you need the sides talking to each other, to deescalate. because you have a very volatile mix of guys with guns on the ground there, and emotions that have been stoked up by russian propaganda. and remember, these gangs, these ununiformed gangs, kind of pro-russian militias, there is a russian hand in that. that's a tool of russian power on the ground there. this is not happening by accident. those guys coming together. and you know, we've talked about this before. once you get that genie out of the
could make russia a pariah, would vladimir putin bat an eyelash? joining me from moscow, nbc's jim maceda. jim, how is putin reacting to this criticism? >> reporter: hi there. well, karen, first of all, putin wouldn't call what he's doing an act of war or aggression, with all due respect to secretary of state kerry. as putin told german chancellor angela merkel in a phone call this evening, he believes mos w moscow's actions are appropriate, and they're more about self-defense. from his point of view, the new pro-western government in kiev poses a threat to his interest in ukraine. that's primarily crimea, where today there were even more troops roaming around going from ukraine army or military post to post, as you mentioned in your lead, trying to disarm the ukrainians. when they wouldn't agree to that, surrounding them and neutralizing their bases. but crimea gives putin the essentials he wants and needs. a base for his black sea fleet. he just doesn't seem affected by all the criticism coming from abroad. putin doesn't seem to believe that the u.s. or its allies have the kind

is going to lose, the russian people are going to lose. >> jim maceda joins us from moscow. a "new york times" article quotes angela merkel having had a telephone conversation with vladimir putin saying she's not sure he is in touch with reality and he is in another world. what does this mean for an escalation of the situation here, do you think? >> what it means is we don't know what will happen next because we can't really anticipate what putin will do. putin is a product of the cold war. for him, no matter how you try to convince him otherwise, anything west of ukraine is enemy territory for him. and he in his own mind is seeing nato creeping up ever so closer -- or closely to his boarders. now, you mentioned secretary kerry going to kiev. that hopefully will calm the waters a little bit, at least keep kiev from doing something unintentionally or that unintentionally as ka lates the situation. but it is now true that the west has mobilized at least diplomatically against vladimir putin's military takeover of crimea. as you say, it's not firmly in his hands. that it's really, julia, u
